The 5-Series has been built in China by BMW Brilliance since late 2013. On November 27 that year, the joint venture launched in Beijing the Shenyang-made 530i (of the fifth generation), which had a list price of 698,000 Yuan. In 2004, the overpriced the BMW-Brilliance 5- and 3- Series posted combined sales of 8,661.

To emulate the success of the long-wheelbase Audi A6, which launched in June 2005, BMW Brilliance introduced the 530Li, 525Li, and 523Li at the 2006 Beijing motor show. The stretched 5-Series, sitting on a wheelbase 140mm longer than that of the standard version, targeted Chinese officials and business people who often occupied the back seats and liked bigger legroom.

On August 5, 2010, the long-wheelbase sixth-gen 5-Series went on sale, available as 523Li, 528Li, and 535Li and priced between 489,600 and 791,600 Yuan.

In 2012, the locally-made 5-Series was the second most popular luxury car in China, claiming 105,967 deliveries. The leader, Audi A6L, posted 138,024 sales. Annual sales reached 123,439 in 2013 and 137,965 in 2014.

In early 2015, BMW-Brilliance started deliveries of a plug-in hybrid version of the long-wheelbase 5 Series, called 530Le.
